FANTASTIC work, vincentel! Very impressive to see this model converted to twin thrust-vectoring EDF. Nice looking build and nice flying, and congrats on the successful maiden! It's amazing how technology keeps advancing--twin thrust-vectoring EDF nozzles, for less than $10 even... Thanks for sharing the pics and vid!

120% Shumate Su-37 EDF

Thank you guys. All my ideas came from contributors like you. Here is the final look of the model. I got the stickers, panel lines, missiles and weathering all done now. Hopefully I can get the courage and fly it in all its glory and get some video to share. Thanks Steve for such an awesome design.

Beautiful bird. I have a full scale now which I love. Looking to build a 120%. Do you have PDF?

What a fantastic jet and nice maiden.
How much forward you had to put the battery to get the correct CG?

Bye

Here are some pictures of where I placed the battery. Hopefully it will answer your question.

120% Shumate Su-37 EDF with Yellow 13 Scheme

I got the courage to fly it in all its glory. it was nerve racking at first...adrenaline, but with the coaxing of my son we finally got it in the air. Just nice and slow for now, when I get up the courage I'll try some TV maneuvers.

Thanks for the pictures. It seems that the EDF mounting in the middle of the wing part makes it less complicated to get the CG at the correct position. With the 2206 motors at the backmost position my Yellow 13 would like to carry the battery in front of the nose

The 3300MAh 4S pack puts 12-13oz of weight in the nose, that's almost 1/4 of my AUW! With that much weight in the nose I knew I had to reinforce the nose with some extra carbon sparring. I found this out the hard way with my second prototype when I would land too hard, the nose would snap off

No plans yet. My second prototype used twin 64mm edfs on a 4S pack with a wingspan of 28inches. It had great power:weight, but the wing loading was high. It flew well but the proportions seemed wrong for the 28in. wingspan, the nacelles looked too large.

You can see the initial prototype here:
